Client Testimonials

“Working with the Sarahs has changed my life. I have lost almost 15kg, which is awesome. But more importantly I'm fit for the first time in my life. I'm proud of myself in terms of the progress I have made and I'm healthier than I've ever been. The Sarahs are an inspiration – they are motivating, challenging, relentless, exhausting and through all that they are wonderful people. Passionate about their work, about helping people and about inspiring others to live a healthy life, it is impossible not to be caught up by their energy. If you are looking for that 'something extra' to get you off the couch and feeling good about yourself, start with Power of S. You won't regret a moment of it (once you recover from the session of course!)."

“I trained with Sarah for four months while shooting a film. As someone who has worked with neurmous trainers over the years, I can say with confidence that Sarah is truly exceptional. Her workouts are smart, safe, creative and consistently challenging. She is also a joy to be around – she is kind, enthusiastic, always professional – and very accommodating when it came to scheduling (she’s a great running partner too!). I will miss her and I hope I will have the chance to train with her again – she is simply marvellous and I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly.”

Jennifer Connelly – Actress (Requiem for a Dream, Labyrinth, A Beautiful Mind)

"I am anything but a gym 'type'. I started with Power of S after having been to a number of gyms that seemed to take little note of my advancing age and sciatica issues. As an older man with a dislike of gyms I was dubious but HAD to do something to stay fit for an ongoing role in The Hobbit film. Sarah has training in injury recovery techniques. I very soon discovered that the training at Studio S was not only keeping me going physically but for the first time in a long time was leaving me pain free as a result of specifically targeted exercises and stretches. I had only to walk into the Studio S gym and Sarah knew what I had been doing and what to do to alleviate pain and increase strength, agility and general well-being. In short, Studio S is the best gym I’ve been to and I’d recommend them to anyone and everyone."

John Callen, 65  – Actor (LOTR: The Hobbit )

"I have been training with the Power of S ladies for the last six months and I feel amazing! They are an absolute inspiration – a pleasure to be around and know how to push youwhen you think you can’t go anymore! These ladies know exactly how to get you motivated and how to get the very best results from your body. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone, at any level of fitness and no matter what your goals are. They will have you addicted to exercise in no time!"

“Sarah has been a guest speaker at the NZ Institute of Sport and has mentored trainee personal trainers. She is a fantastic role-model and is motivational and inspirational. She has a proven track record in getting results in her personal training. I would have no hesitation in recommending her. The students got enormous value from her experiences."

Shelley Addison

“Sarah is one of the most inspiring individuals I have ever met, as well as a truly gifted personal trainer. Sarah is dedicated, knowledgeable, approachable and her passion for the health and wellbeing of her clients is a rare and priceless thing. I would encourage anyone who is considering taking their fitness to the next level to meet with Sarah to discuss their plans. You won't regret it! ”

Desiree Viggars

“Sarah was a great personal trainer during the time I employed her services. She was both creative and practical in the exercise routines she designed for me which have been helpful for getting a certain level of fitness back. She is also an excellent motivator and on more than one occasion I was pushed to beyond what even I thought I was capable of.”
